2011-09-02T09:00:00-07:00 2007 Saturn Sky Red Line Bob Lutz
General Motors has announced that Bob Lutz, former Vice Chairman, will return to GM as a consultant. Lutz will be available to executives and senior leadership on a part-time basis, effective immediately.
Lutz has a lengthy history in the automotive industry, including time at GM (from 1963 through 1971, and again from 2001 to 2010), BMW, Ford, Chrysler and industry supplier Exide. He’s contributed to the development of the Dodge Viper and Chrysler’s LH series cars, the Ford Explorer and the reborn [COLOR=blue !important][COLOR=blue !important]Pontiac[/COLOR][/COLOR] GTO (really a badge-engineered Holden Monaro). Lutz has also been behind the development of more recent efforts, including the Saturn Sky/[COLOR=blue !important][COLOR=blue !important]Pontiac [COLOR=blue !important]Solstice[/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR], the Cadillac CTS, the new Camaro and the restyled 2010 Cadillac SRX.
Though most associated with [COLOR=blue !important][COLOR=blue !important]performance [COLOR=blue !important]cars[/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR], Lutz also backed the development of fuel-efficient cars, including the extended-range EV Chevrolet Volt, telling Newsweek in 2008 that, “the electrification of the [COLOR=blue !important][COLOR=blue !important]automobile[/COLOR][/COLOR] is inevitable.”
Although Lutz retired from GM in 2010, he has been providing informal consulting services to the automaker since. GM’s announcement doesn’t change much, but it does establish a more formal relationship between the two parties.08 Z71 Avalanche Mods to date: K&N CAI,Hellwig Swaybars and End Links, Corsa Sport Exhaust, Superchips Programer,IPCW LOF & 3rd brake light and tails, AMI Gas door,Show Hooks and Door locks, Enkei Wheels, with Pirelli tires, StreetScene Bowties, Grant Steering wheel,Muth signal mirrors,SSBC Big Brake kit,Huskyliner Mug gards,Floor mats and Hood shield, McGard Lug nuts and locks, Bedrug, Cervini's Ram Air hood,35watt HID Fog lights, Sylvania bulbs all around ZXE's Highs and Lows, WhiteNight Back up lights,Sirius and HD Radio, SnugTop sitting on deck now Got a Softopper on now,Tempress Boat Hatches....

Wow, I have met Bob in Detroit and he's one of the sharpest dudes I've ever had the pleasure to meet and talk with. This can't be bad for GM.
